Dishwasher does not dry dishes no matter what setting. Also, bottom arm keeps coming off. This last time is melted to the heating element and must replace the arm. I cannot find out why it won't dry and need to find where to order new part.

Experience : 30 years in dish washing as a professional instructing hospitals and restaurants.
It is not necesaasry to cover the heating element as long as sufficient water is present so as to not STARVE the water pump.
Listen to the sound of water serging with the machien running. If it is contant you have enough water if the sound comes and goes then the pump is serging . either lyou have a low water level or CLOGGED strainer in the bottom of the machine (inside).

you might also open the door real fast during the wash and check for water splashing and flows---- you might get wet but this way works .(wear protective eye shields)

water levels can be raised by BENDING the tab on the bottom of the float which controls water level...much like a toilet tank float.
Also finally if soap levels are too high the soap will not rinse off regardless of the amount of "rinse fluid you use.

Lower spray arm dislodged during wash cycle


Hello Megan Quintas,

I have had the bottoms of the Frigidaire DISHWASHER rotted out AND their center-shaft NEVER LOST IT'S vertical alignment...

So my personal opinion...

You are good once you replace your defective spray arm..

Put your model+make+spray+arm

or better yet the ORIGINAL PART NUMBER to get three estimates...

Good luck, happy hunting!!

Not working


Good Afternoon heartbrea158, I am happy to assist you. If the dishwasher is not cleaning, typically, this is a sign that the water temperature to the unit is not warm enough. The water temperature should be at least 120f and no more than 130f. I advise turning the hot water on at the sink (or faucet closest to the dishwasher); allow the water to get as hot as possible. Are you using rinse aid? Use a rinse agent to increase drying and cleaning performance. When was the last time the filter was cleaned? If the spray arm can manually rotate, then another possibility may be that not enough water is being pumped to the spray arm. If you tap the delivery tube that feeds this nozzle and the water pressure jumps immediately; the problem lies either with the pump or maybe the impeller, for some reason the full flow of water is not making it to the upper spray arm. Should all basic troubleshooting measures fail contact a certified technician to narrow down the precise issue before investing in parts that may or may not be the root cause.

Sounds like you need a professional to diagnose the unit for repairs. You are either having a timer issue or a control board communication error.

Frigidaire diswasher not drying dishes properly


Make sure you have the heated dry setting selected, use rinse aid at all times, and make sure the unit is getting hot. If it is not, or there is no steam generated when you open the unit after cycle - have a professional diagnose the heating element.

Dish washer gets to hot in pot scrubber mode


did it distort the spray arm? A lot of times if it's the spray arm that melted it's possible that it was jammed while trying to heat the water and the heat from the element would warp it.

The cycle did not complete,the bottom spray arm (the tip) melted along with some plastic utensils (knife handles). Water come out of thee front door.When starting the washer again, the top and bottom spays...


The handles slipped down keeping the spray arm from rotating thus causing it to rest against the heating element. It won't wash because of the hole in the bottom spray arm. You have to replace the spray arm before nything else can be determined.

Burning Frigidaire dishwasher


After you turn off the power to your dishwasher, you can inspect the dishwasher with a flashlight to find where the melting happened. If it is near the circle that is the heating element, you can suspect the timer froze during the drying cycle.

But also open things up and look for shorted/melted wires (in the door panel and under the dishwasher.)

No matter what you find, if you have proof of purchase for your dishwasher, I would press for repair/replacement from the manufacturer.

Good Luck!

My Dishwasher does'nt dry my dishes.


How old is the dishwasher? Check the front control panel for a AIR DRY / HEAT DRY switch. Perhaps the switch is in the AIR DRY position. If so and you really want to HEAT DRY your dishes, set the switch for HEAT DRY. Otherwise: Second, it is not a bad thing to let your dishes AIR DRY. It saves money! Just open the Dish Washer door after the last rinse cycle has finished and let the dishes AIR DRY manually. In a hour or so they can usually be put away. Works for me :)
